Naaah. I was looking forward to more. Turning a blind eye to Del Toro's non-British facial features was one thing, but I was hoping for a post-modern rendition loyal to an original story (if there is one) and old-fashioned special effects, in the lines of Bram Stoker's Dracula and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. Still, the beautiful Gothic production design (and of course, Anthony Hopkins) make this repetitious tale watchable. Needless to say, the ending prepares for an obvious sequel.
PS: An American Werewolf in London is still my favorite wolf-man movie.
